wholehearted support, guidance and care, meaningful moments
IVF and fertility treatment can be challenging both physically and emotionally. As your doula I will support you through every step. Having had my own struggles with fertility, I understand the challenges of trying to conceive, the feelings of uncertainty, and the physical impacts on the body. I also understand that each couple's journey is uniquely their own. I will be there to nurture and support you through every step.
I will give continuous emotional support during all phases of your treatment, including office visits and procedures and antenatal support through pregnancy, if desired.
I will provide physical and emotional support at home while coping with any physical challenges that arise from fertility treatments and procedures, including hormone therapy side effects and bed rest during implantation. This may include light meal preparation, tidying up, laundry and animal care.
I will provide evidence-based information as needed, and will be a good source for local referrals if you’re seeking care of an acupuncturist, naturopath, massage therapist, or counselor to compliment your fertility care.
Antenatal support will include: Accompaniment to prenatal office visits, assistance with formulating your birth plan and preferences, education on newborn care and birth preparation, light housekeeping and meal preparation, prenatal Pilates and light stretching exercises.
